  • Prevention Matters – Through AKF’s Minority Intervention and Kidney Education (MIKE) program, the organization will offer free kidney health screenings, education and risk assessments in Atlanta, Chicago and Washington, D.C. In Chicago, AKF has partnered with the Thapelo Institute for a special screening and education event on March 13 that includes a launch of AKF’s annual public awareness radio ad campaign. Through the public awareness radio campaign, AKF will alert the public that diabetes and high blood pressure are the leading causes of kidney failure and will encourage people to know their risks and get tested.

  •  
    • Advocacy on Capitol Hill –In partnership with other organizations in the kidney care community, AKF will host a group of patient advocates to increase kidney disease awareness on Capitol Hill. On March 11, World Kidney Day, AKF Advocates will participate in meetings with their respective members of Congress to discuss their experiences living with kidney disease and to advocate for prevention initiatives.
